State of Emergency Extended to June 30/20

On advice of Ontario’s Chief Medical Officer of Health and with the approval of the Ontario legislature, the government has extended the Declaration of Emergency under the Emergency Management and Civil Protection Act to June 30.

This allows the government to continue to use every tool at their disposal to protect the health and safety of all Ontarians during the COVID-19 outbreak.

Extending the declaration of emergency ensures important protection measures taken to-date to stop the spread of COVID-19 remain in place. It also signals a cautious approach to reopening the province and supports the ability to quickly implement and enforce additional emergency orders.
